When a Poem Gets Few Reads

When a Poem Gets Few Reads

 

By Elton Camp

 

Although I am hardly a bard,

On my poem I worked so hard

The best words I tried to choose

And trite expressions not to use

 

When finally I had got through

And done the best that I knew,

I posted it onto the poetry site

Hoping it might bring delight

 

Several hours later I felt so low

Not even one person did there go

Days later, it was read by just two

I felt sad that readers were so few

 

But my writing it was not a mistake

Lack of interest is a chance you take

After all, how many folks can say,

“I wrote a poem back on that day.”
